If you have a smartphone, there’s a really good chance that you’re using at least some of your free time scrolling through your Facebook feed. You probably think you know all of the tips and tricks, but have you heard of these sneaky tips that you can use to make the most of your Facebook experience?

7 Tips to Get More Out of Your Facebook App

Block annoying posts or friends from your news feed.

Let’s face it – you will always have family and friends who have different views than you do. While we can all celebrate diversity, it’s sometimes frustrating when your newsfeed is cluttered with posts about topics you don’t want to see. If an unwanted post pops on your newsfeed, click on the downward facing arrow on the top right corner of the offending post and choose your preferred option.

Save links to read later.

There are so many links and articles posted on Facebook that you’d never be able to read them all and still get your work or homework done. Instead of procrastinating even more, bookmark links that you’d like to read later by clicking the arrow in the upper right-hand corner and selecting “save link.” You can access this at a later time by clicking “saved links” on the left side menu on your newsfeed.

Save photos directly to your phone.

The number of photos shared online have increased tremendously over the years, to enable you to keep all your favorite pictures, Facebook came up with the “Save Photo” feature. All saved images are immediately downloaded to your phone’s storage.

Keep your feed constantly updated by switching to new posts.

Long gone are the days you had to scroll and scroll through your feed to access latest news. As you go through your feed, Facebook keeps you updated on how many new posts have been made. Simply click on the most recent news on your notification bar to have your feed refreshed to the most recent.

Made a mistake? You can edit your posts.

Another major feature with the new Facebook for Android and iOS is the ability to edit your posts. No longer will you have to let typos live in your posts. This feature allows you to edit posts even within seconds of when they were published.

Show your friend that funny post you liked earlier by using your Activity Log.

This feature shows you everything you have ever liked or commented on. Looking through your past activities on social media has never been easier. The Activity log feature shows you all the comments you have made on posts and everything you have ever liked.

Manage all of your accounts from one device.

It wouldn’t make sense to have all new features without improvements in terms of account security. This feature basically shows you all places your account is currently in use. Be it your laptop at home or your best friend’s mobile phone. The best part is that it allows you to log out of all the active sessions with the click of just one button.
